Reno Tahoe Odyssey Relay Run Adventure

May 31 - June 1

Three unique race options – one unforgettable experience!

15th annual Reno-Tahoe Odyssey (May 31-June 1)
It’s unlike anything you’ll experience, lots of fun, and provides an overwhelming feeling of accomplishment and teamwork. Ideally suited for 12-person teams, runners cover a 178-mile course that is divided into 36 legs of varying lengths and difficulty. Sound impossible? Not when each runner typically runs around 15 miles (3 legs) and there are hundreds of people cheering for you along the way! The Reno Tahoe Odyssey starts in downtown Reno and travels along the Truckee River, up to the Sierra Nevada range and along the shores of Lake Tahoe, passes through the Northern Nevada high desert including Virginia City, before returning to Reno. Limited to 250 teams and there are staggered starts.

7th annual Capital Odyssey Relay (June 1)
This one day Odyssey will join the regular Reno-Tahoe Odyssey Relay in progress for the last 12 legs of the regular RTO course. This relay is from Carson City (Nevada’s Capital) to Reno. Teams will be running approximately 63 miles. Start time will be early Saturday morning.

5th annual Comstock Odyssey Relay (June 1)
This race provides another option for teams that wish to run a shorter relay on Saturday. The course starts in Virginia City, home of the famous Comstock Lode, and goes to Reno. It’s the last 6 legs of the Reno-Tahoe Odyssey route and is approximately 29 miles. Start times will be Saturday morning.
